Fed up of watching Leeds United lose? FC Armley is a new football team set up in Armley and its first game is on Sunday! Harley Hirst reports on a real grass roots effort.
Around 12 weeks ago I set up a brand new amateur football team right here in glorious Armley!
Things have progressed nicely, I’ve managed to get a great bunch of lads together.
We have shiny new kit and equipment and I’ve also managed to secure us a pitch at Armley Park and also the support of the Armley Conservative Club, providing us with changing rooms and somewhere to socialise after!
We play our first league game this Sunday at 11am against Northern Star. We play at Armley Park pitch one, which is the one closest to the road. We will be wearing white with light blue stripes.
If you’re out and about or just walking the dog we’d really appreciate a bit of support! Come along and support grass roots football and your local community at the same time – even if it’s just for 10 minutes or the full 90!
Thanks for reading and I hope to see some of you soon.
